    Quick question for the smart people. I really don't want to get into the why would you, price difference, or model differences, but can someone import a 15 Challenger SRT from Canada? Would there be any issues like gotta change this or that? Thanks for any help in advance Dustin

    All built the same. Probably warranty issues, as the Canadian warranty wasn't as generous.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'm not worried about the warranty. Short version is I'm currently living in Adu Dhabia UAE and have a chance to buy the Challenger. I don't want to run into issues if I bring it home

    Not sure about UAE but warranty is void if imported to or from the USA.

    Yep no factory warranty here either, unless it's a GCC spec. It would come with a non factory warranty (3year/60K mile) just wondering can I bring it back to the US (TN) and register it when I leave here.

    I known friends & family that have moved into the U.S. from Canada with their vehicles. I know they have to be completely factory. Any aftermarket stuff had to go (back then). The only thing that might give you grief (I doubt it) is the fact that the big shiny display on the right of your dash will read in kilometers... Can't speak to emission testing, as every area seems to have their own take on that.

    With the crappy Canadian peso right now, it would be an excellent time to buy here in U.S. dollars, If you can make the right deal...

    Yea the funny thing about the speedo is I didn't notice it when I was first looking at it. Being here in the UAE the speedo and the different radio (frequency) is a good thing. Just got an email from a gentleman from Dodge saying no issues just requires a compliance letter. The hellcat has a new friend

    No worries for you at all. You should have zero problems once you get your compliance letter. Change the air filter weekly over there!

    You guys are waiting over a year for the 392's? I bought it. It was brand new, heck I even had to clean all the grease pencil marks off of it.
